Common rush is a species of plant found in Red Dead Redemption 2 and it can help you achieve the “Picked To Perfection” trophy / achievement in Red Dead Online. However, if you are specifically looking for this plant, it is probably for one of the daily RDO challenges, as Bulrush is very toxic to humans. Instead, Common Bulrush serves as a key ingredient in horse medicine, stimulants, and ointment.
If you make the unfortunate mistake of ingesting common rush, your character will instantly turn to the contents of their stomach. You can easily identify the common bulrush by the long bladed leaves and the brown, tubular-shaped flowers without petals, which should help you avoid the unpleasant experience of eating through trial and error. Here are the best places to gather the poisonous Common Bulrush plant in RDR2 and Red Dead Online.
